What software uses the firewire on a Fuel ?

Unread postby strandedinnz » Wed Sep 09, 2009 6:10 am

Hi there,

I've a firewire board in my Fuel .. how do I make use of it ?

I want to both import and export video via it .. but I don't know what commands under IRIX would do that.

Any pointers ... I quite happily RTFM if I know which manual to read :-)

The search brought back a few more, but unfortunately I think those two pretty much sum up the current state of the fuel-firewire-video situation.

Pick up a Canopus ADVC 55. Then we'd confirm that none of the supported firewire video devices work.
